Not the best finish to what was a pretty good month of training. Two sets of intervals, a week of hill work, a road race and several 15ks in very hot weather. Not bad.
Monday and Tuesday this week were tropical storm Debby days. They were really fun runs actually. Wet and wild. Wednesday and Thursday were Africa hot. Humid bt very quick and the pace was nice and strong and enjoyable.
In general I enjoyed my vacation and I really enjoyed the running. I bought three pairs of Saucony shoes along with what I have, all with a low 4mm drop in them. I got two more of these inserts that I am using, I also bought a Camelbak "bag" for the longer runs that should be helpful.
I was able, as you can see, to get a lot of equipment that should provide some "help" for the training for longer races.
I consider these vacations to be the starts of new years as my contracts are 11 months long. Starting Monday I will be doing teacher training in our Exam Center office in Obolon for 8 weeks. But it is better hours actually and should make running nice and easy.
Still, it would have been nice to run more miles for the month but, I ran.
